Australian Couple Says They'll Get Divorced If Same-Sex Marriage Is Legalized

Recommended Posts

Christian couple threaten to divorce in protest against same-sex marriage

June 10, 2015

Australian Nick Jensen says that if same-sex marriage is introduced, he and his wife will divorce.

Writing in the Canberra CityNews, Mr Jensen says he will continue to live with his wife, Sarah, and their children – and they will still consider themselves married. But they will no longer be legally married.

He wrote: “Marriage is the union of a man and a woman before a community in the sight of God. And marriage of any couple is important to God regardless of whether that couple recognises God’s involvement or authority in it.

“If our federal parliament votes to change the timeless and organic definition of marriage later on this year, it will have moved against the fundamental and foundational building block of Australian society and, indeed, human culture everywhere.

“Indeed, it raises a red flag when a government decides it is not content only having sovereignty over land, taxes and the military — but ‘words’ themselves.

“This is why we are willing to divorce. By changing the definition of marriage, ‘marriage’ will, in years to come, have an altogether different sense and purpose.”

Mr Jensen works for the American Christian Lobby, who campaign against same-sex marriage.

Canberra CityNews has faced a backlash from Facebook fans for publishing Mr Jensen’s article – with many saying the magazine should be “ashamed” to give such few views a platform.

One reader said: “What a stupid article, you may as well have written about how two crazy people still believe the world is flat. Geez. Homophobic propaganda.”

Editor Ian Meikle told news.com.au: “The article does not reflect the opinion of the paper. It’s an unusual love story, and what would life be if people didn’t have different ways of life.”

In the ongoing debate on same-sex marriage in Australia, the first National MP said yesterday he would vote in favour.

Stupid people indeed. All this talk about God and stuff makes them blind to understand that today a marriage is a contract in the first place. (Well, it has always been considering that a marriage in ancient times was hardly about love but politics, influence and property.) And to have this contract disolved by authoristies you will have to give a reason otherwise you cannot get a divorce technically. What will that reason be? Irreconcilable differences? I doubt that questioning a law that doesn't even affect them is enough. And I wonder if they have even thought about the consequences. The costs of a divorce (the process itself), splitting property, custody rights. They will loose a lot of benefits that comes with marriage. Taxes, healtcare etc. They might find themselves in a similar situation as gay couples now. At least this will be a learning experience.

Those Christian Crusaders are really crazy. As someone said before they probably still believe the world is flat. You cannot take them seriously. They are trolls, publicity whores.

It's a pity they are not catholics. Because if they got divorced they would burn in hell for eternity.

They are so pathetic. This guy just loves attention and has been interviewed on radio and Tv pushing his agenda. Basically, just about everyone in Australia thinks they are moronic, bigoted idiots and wonder why they are given any publicity and attention from the mainstream media.

I invite everyone who supports marriage equality to come celebrate the DIVORCE of Nick & Sarah Jensen!

They have decided that being married together in a country where it's legal for a man and a man to marry, or a woman and a women, is just too horrible. They'd much rather be divorced and I think we should all support and celebrate in their decision when the date finally does come.

We sure hope there won't be any backing out on their behalf as hundreds upon hundreds of gays and gay rights supporters come to rejoice in the parting ways of these narrow minded citizens which so many of us are ashamed to call Canberrans.

Date and location to be announced, but hopefully in the not too distant future. (Sep 1st just a placeholder for now, but who knows!)

This couple is a joke and easy to ignore, but most LGBT people in the world still live in extremely homophobic and anti gay countries without any social support and protection from discrimination. :sad:
